If you’re in the Upper Geyser Basin area (Old Faithful) this evening swing by the @ynpforever
Art and Photography Center at 7pm. Members of our social media teams are meeting up to explore the Geyser Basin at sunset. Who knows, maybe we can get lucky and see a Beehive eruption! #YellowstonePledge #YellowstoneForever
The second group of the 2018 Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps has arrived! If you're visiting in the next three weeks and see them working in the park, say hi!
This program is funded by a grant from @ynpforever.
Where is your favorite place to watch the sunset in Yellowstone?
Thanks to @alberthbyang

In Yellowstone you never know what's going to happen outside your office window. Today an adult great horned owl (on the right) fed its young on a porch railing in Mammoth Hot Springs. This owlet will soon be on its own to find food and a new territory. #owls #fledgling
If you saw our live story this afternoon you know the elk are out in the Mammoth area. Remember to keep a safe distance and never approach an animal to take its picture. Use your zoom lens or binoculars to get a better view!
Safe distances: 100 yards from bears and wolves and 25 yards away from everything else! #YellowstonePledge #SafeSelfie
Nothing beats hiking to a waterfall on a hot summer day. As always, hike in groups, make noise, carry bear spray, and know how to use it! 🐻💨👍🏽 #YellowstonePledge
The human history of the Yellowstone region goes back more than 11,000 years. Today, the park uses archeological studies help explain how humans left their mark. Archaeologists also decide when restrictions are needed to preserve cultural resources as roads and other facilities are updated or expanded in the park.
Digging in the park is not allowed. Leave any artifacts you may come across for others to enjoy in the future! #YellowstonePledge
join forces extraordinary things are possible. One example? A $500,000 grant to help preserve and restore the native fish populations in Yellowstone.

Castle Geyser has the largest cone and may be the oldest of all geysers in Upper Geyser Basin. It erupts every 10-12 hours. The water 💦 phase can reach 90 feet, lasts about 20 minutes, and is followed by a noisy steam 💨 phase lasting 30 - 40 minutes. Have you seen a Castle eruption? #YellowstonePledge
“There is nothing so American as our national parks... The fundamental idea behind the parks...is that the country belongs to the people." - Franklin D. Roosevelt #IDeclare #FindYourPark
In Yellowstone you can find red, white, and blue in our hot springs and displays of nature that make you look to the sky both day and night. Happy #IndependenceDay
It’s hard to read the trailhead sign that says “Bear frequenting area” when there is a bear covering it up. 😳
